Mispprinted YuGi-Oh CArds (Page 3)

*Cards below are based on actual misprinted cards.
Limit Reverse
Continuous Spell
Select 1 monster with 1000 or less ATK from your Graveyard, and Special Summon it in Attack Position. If that monster is changed to Defense Position, destroy it and this card. When this card is removed from the field, destroy that monster. When that monster is destroyed, destroy this card.
Comments: Not many use this card as it is but it becomes more useful as a Continuous Spell.
Normal Trap
Destroy all monsters on your opponent's side of the field.
Comments: It'd only water down the card's brokeness a tad.
Active Link Arrows Top, Bottom, Left and Right
Firewall Dragon
LIGHT / Cyberse-Type Link / Link 8
2+ monsters
Once while face-up on the field (Quick Effect): You can target monsters on the field and/or GY up to the number of monsters co-linked to this card; return them to the hand. If a monster this card points to is destroyed by battle or sent to the GY: You can Special Summon 1 monster from your hand.
Comments: A Link-8 monster would be next-to-impossible to get out without allowing the user to use monsters in the hand or Deck as Link Material.
Black Luster Soldier
EARTH / Warrior-Type Ritual / Level 4 / ATK 3000 / DEF 2500
This monster can only be Ritual Summoned with the Ritual Spell Card, "Black Luster Ritual". You must also offer monsters whose total Level Stars equal 8 or more as a Tribute from the field or your hand.
Comments: A Level 4 Ritual Monster becomes abusable with Ritual Weapon and the like. Of course, it still requires monsters whose Level totals 8 though.
Flame Ghost
DARK / Zombie-Type Fusion / Level 3 / ATK 1000 / DEF 800
1 Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner monsters
Comments: A Fusion Monster with Synchro Materials would certainly make for confusion. Wouldn't add to this card's uses though.
Mirror Force
Normal Trap
When a face-up monster you control is targeted for an attack: Its ATK becomes equal to that of the attacking monster.
Comments: No longer the iconic menace that I'm sure had people fearing the worst when it was activated but it can still be relatively potent.
Mystical Space Typhoon
Continuous Spell
Destroy 1 Magic or Trap Card on the field.
Comments: Such an iconic card that most should realize the mistake.
Gene-Warped Warwolf
WIND / Beast-Warrior / Level 4 / ATK 2000 / DEF 1000
This warwolf was given incalculable strength through horrific genetic manipulation. Its gentle nature was completely wiped out, and it now lives only to unleash destruction.
Comments: Pretty subtle changes here but they're easy to spot if you remember the actual card's properties.
Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning
LIGHT / Warrior / Level 8 / ATK 3000 / DEF 2500
This monster can attack twice during the same Battle Phase. While this card is face-up on the field, control of this card cannot switch.
Comments: It's actually somewhat more overpowered due to the lack of a summoning requirement and prevention from being taken control of by your opponent.
Chaos Emperor Dragon - Envoy of the End
DARK / Dragon / Level 8 / ATK 3000 / DEF 2500
This card can only be Special Summoned by removing 1 LIGHT and 1 DARK monster in your Graveyard from play. Once during each of your turns, you can select and activate 1 of the following effects:
● Remove 1 monster on the field from play. If you activate this effect, this card cannot attack during this turn.
● If this card destroyed your opponent's monster as a result of battle, it can attack once again in a row.
Comments: The first blunder will come up right away but the 2nd takes one infamy and replaces it with another.
Ring of Destruction
Normal Trap
Destroy 1 face-up monster on your side of the field to inflict 1000 points of damage to both player's Life Points.
Comments: It wouldn't have needed to be banned but it wouldn't be playable at all either.
Continuous Spell
While you control a monster, you take no battle damage.
Comments: This card would become not only humorous due to its name but also much more playable.
Active Link Arrows Top and Bottom
Decode Talker
DARK / Cyberse-Type Link / ATK 1000 / Link 3
2+ Effect Monsters
Gains 500 ATK for each monster it points to. When your opponent activates a card or effect that targets a card(s) you control (Quick Effect): You can Tribute 1 monster this card points to; negate the activation, and if you do, destroy that card.
Comments: Now it's considerably weaker and even less playable, not to mention its Link Rating and active Link Arrrows don't match.
Pendulum Scale 4 Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon
DARK / Dragon-Type Pendulum / Level 7 / ATK 250 / DEF 2000
Pendulum Text: None
Monster Text: Once per turn, during either player's Main Phase: You can target 1 face-up monster on the field; switch its current ATK and DEF until the end of this turn.
Comments: What's wrong with this card? Well there's some pretty obvious clues right on the card itself, notably its Pendulum Text box.
Number 39: Utopia
EARTH / Warrior-Type Xyz / Rank 4 / ATK 2600 / DEF 1900
2 Level 2 monsters
If this face-up card would be destroyed, you can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card instead. Face-up monsters you control gain 200 ATK and DEF for each Xyz Material attached to this card.
Comments: A mjaor screw up here thanks to incorrect Attribute, ATK/DEF and effect.
Nightmare's Steelcage
Normal Spell
Counting from your opponent's turn, none of your opponent's monsters can attack for 3 turns of his/her own. When this card is activated, opponent's face-down monsters at that time are turned face-up, but remain in Defense Position. Any effects the monsters may have are immediately activated.
Comments: Even though the text dates back to the early days of the game, the card would be much improved as it only locks out your opponent's monsters.  
Hamon, Lord of Striking Thunder
LIGHT / Fairy / Level 10 / ATK 4000 / DEF 0
This card cannot be Normal Summoned or Set. This card cannot be Special Summoned except by sending 3 face-up Continuous Spell Cards from your side of the field to the Graveyard. When this card destroys your opponent's monster as a result of battle and sends it to the Graveyard, inflict 1000 points of damage to your opponent's Life Points. While this card is in face-up Defense Position on your side of the field, your opponent cannot select another monster as an attack target.
Comments: The errors are more subtle but they're pretty obvious too considering the monster is well-known in the anime and card game.  
Raviel, Lord of Phantasms
DARK / Fiend / Level 10 / ATK 4000 / DEF 4000
This card cannot be Normal Summoned or Set. This card cannot be Special Summoned except by Tributing 3 Fiend-Type monsters on your side of the field. Each time your opponent Normal Summons a monster(s), Special Summon 1 "Phantasm Token" (Fiend-Type/DARK/Level 1/ATK 1000/DEF 1000) on your side of the field. This token cannot declare an attack. Once per turn, by Tributing 1 monster on your side of the field, increase the ATK of this card by the original ATK of the Tributed monster, until the End Phase of this turn.
Comments: It wouldn't make it any more playable but it does coincide with the monster's appearance.  
Uria, Lord of Searing Flames
FIRE / Pyro / Level 10 / ATK 4000 / DEF 4000
This card can attack your opponent's Life Points directly. Each time this card successfully attacks directly, increase the ATK of this card by 1000 points.
Comments: No summoning requirements and the ability to attack directly with such high ATK and DEF would probably mean emergency banning before release.  
Elemental Hero Neos
LIGHT / Warrior / Level 6 / ATK 2500 / DEF 2000
A new Elemental Hero has arrived from Neo-Space! When he initiates a Contact Fusion with a Neo-Spacian his unknown powers are unleashed.
Comments: Losing 1 star in its Level brings it from barely playable to pretty darn good in an instant. It'd probably be at least a Rare in this stance.
